Knit 1, Purl 2 in Crochet
Designer Bendy Carter has figured out how to truly translate knitting into crochet. By using a unique stitching method, with a regular crochet hook, she teaches how to crochet many, many knitted looks. By combining knit and purl stitches- in crochet- you can create wonderful knit-like fabrics with bobbles, textural patterns, ribbing, and cables. Bendy takes you through the basic method and stitches and then creates combinations in stitch patterns that you can use to emulate knitwear. There are twelve fabulous patterns using some of these combinations, including a handbag, a cabled sweater and afghan, a lace and two-tone scarf, and a simple hot pad, to name a few. Crochet has never looked so knitted! This method and these stitches will greatly expand anyone's crochet repertoire.
